I did this and would HIGHLY recommend replacing the vacuum adance spring as well to complete the mod. This will allow you to gain more pedal in the higher RPM's. Before I could not get it to come close to red line and now I have plenty of power throught more of the pedal. Plus the part is only $5.

Thanks for a new reason to spend more money

Two quick questions....

What application did you use for the wires (ie: Ford, Chrysler, etc.)?

How did the coil wires from the harness color code to the new plug?

Thanks again....Seriously!

Ahhh, my old thread has been necroposted.
Anyone interested in doing this, and why they should do this, should read this post by JeepHammer. He is the guy who invented the whole thing:

Anyone have a list of part numbers needed for this? I have been searching and can't seem to find it.

Not of part numbers, but I asked for parts by name from the two auto suppliers and they brought me just what I wanted/needed.

Belden spark plug wires for a 1995 YJ with 4.0.
Ford E-Coil from a 1987 Ford F150 with 300 CID inline-6.
Wiring pigtail for the coil.
Distributor rotor, cap, and cap adapter from an 82 Ford F150 with 300 CID I6.
Champion copper core spark plugs from an AMC 258.

Then have them verify that the cap is a "premuim" cap with solid brass terminals and not just copper coated aluminum. If in doubt, just get the most expensive cap they have.

That's how I did it, and am VERY happy with the purchase.

For the price it's well worth it, especially if you can get the components at a u-pull salvage yard.

These are the parts I used. This is utilizing the stock coil. Everything fit well.

Advance Auto Part Numbers shown simply because I have these handy...
Distributor Cap Adapter, p/n C193 AP or FR109, $5.
Distributor Cap, Standard/Blue Streak p/n KCR-202X, $20
Rotor, Comes with premium cap replacements.
Plug wires, Autolite p/n 96171, about $30

This is another part list refering to the upgraded ford coil.

If you use the E-core coil, and there is nothing wrong with using the E-core coil for this application, you just probably aren't going to get into the RPM ranges to make it really work for you...
Still, if you snag one off a late 80's or 90's fuel injected Ford vehicle where you can get the coil, coil connector and mount for about $5, then by all means, use it!

The proper plug wires for that coil would be.
Advance Auto/ Autolite p/n 96624, about $25.

If you buy an E-core coil, which is going to run about $50 or up for a good one,
You will need to buy a coil connector also, NAPA p/n ICC1, $15,
And you will have to make a bracket since there aren't any easily available in the aftermarket...

Remember, the actual "TeamRush" upgrade is just cap, rotor, plug wires...
After that, you can add and choose to do the rest in bits and pieces, tuning the distributor, adding the E-core coil, changing over to a CDI ignition module..

I took this from post 25 on here. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=589777&page=2

Thanks again for the assist on the parts. I'll be doing the switch next weekend more likely than not.

I tried to do this mod yesterday. I went to 3 different auto parts stores to gather up the parts from a '87 F150. I got them back to my garage and opened the boxes, and the coil and pigtail were the only parts that looked like the parts in this thread.
Sure enough, I took off my stock dizzy cap, and the new stuff didn't fit. I took the parts back and got a refund. To make a long story short, there is a slight bit of misinformation in this thread. The parts from a '87 F150 won't work at all, which is what's listed in this thread. I clicked on the link and read the original instructions by TeamRush, and they say to use the parts from a '82 F150. If you look at any online pics of stuff from a '82, they look exactly like the stuff pictured in this write-up.
Awesome write-up though, and I will be doing this today! (with the correct parts!)

Thanks for pointing that out, and sorry for causing you to make a second trip.
I think that since I own an 87 YJ that I said that was the year of the Ford that the parts came from.
I'll edit the post I made to reflect this change.
